The 9 Stages of Writing a Blog Post, Demonstrated by Minions
Honestly? I've always wanted to do a Buzzfeed-esque "name stuff and include a gif" type of post. Because I'm a (say it with me everybody …) Millennial! It's what we do.
It's a Friday afternoon in summer, the office feels like a winter night on Pluto, and we technically got out of work an hour early today but I'm still here, determined to provide you all with top-quality blog content, so that day is clearly today.
And what better to use as my visual than the yellow-and-blue plague (admittedly adorable plague) that seems to have swept every visible surface of the earth? The Minions. Can't look anywhere these days without seeing them in all their overalled glory, so why not my blog, too?
They don't speak any discernible language, but somehow they speak to our hearts. And so, I present: "A Copywriter's Journey, As Told By Minions."
1. The Blank Page
This guy is like, 97 percent of the full process for me.
2. The Lightbulb Moment
"Yes ... a blog post with MINIONS ... it's genius!"
3. The Part Where Words Start to Happen (AKA The False Sense of Security)
Oh, you've totally got this. Nothing to worry about at all.
4. The Self Doubt
"On second thought, this is literally the worst idea I've ever had in my entire life."
5. The Dreaded Writer's Block
I've actually never seen a better representation.
6. The Approaching Deadline
7. This Stage
Needs no explanation.
8. The Second Wave
It might be 10 minutes to press time (do we still have those on the Internet?), but you've got this for real this time.
9. PARTY TIME
WEEEEEEE ARE THE CHAAAAAMPIOOONS MY FRIIIEEEEENDS ...
And all that's left is to wake up tomorrow and do it all over again! Thanks for the help, Minions. I'll see you on every billboard, fast food advertisements, and I'll see you at the movies! (And virtually everywhere else.)
